ok, second set of measures! but let me start with a picture of the cutout on the upper back first arrow



see what i mean when talking abot the angle?

anyway, here are the next measures you need for your porject:

30 = 50.3
31 = 20.1
32 = 18.0
33 = 44.5
34 = 16.5
35 = 47.0
36 = 10.0
37 = 3.0
38 = 9.5
39 = 66.4
40 = 145.7
41 = 24.5
42 = 53.5
43 = 3.6
44 = 1.4

let me add this: getting some of those measures is not easy because of some curves / angles involved, therefore no guarantee for the accuracy - would be cool if someone else with a defender cab could double-check. this is the first time i've taken measures for a scratch-built cabinet and what i've learned is this: without an original cab as a template to copy on a cnc machine, a reproduction cabinet can only be a very close approximation. what i would like to do is take one of scr33n's famous blueprints and put it on the side of a real cabinet to find out how accurate they really are. i'm sure they are extremely close, but how close would be interesting to see.

@max: perhaps you could send one of your blueprints over once you've created it for some final adjustments?

Wooaahh this air-grille is difficult to replicate (I'll see  confused) thanks for the pic.

Yes this for sure, very difficult to replicate with great accuracy, but I try my best with your help and with cab-profile found on the net  Tongue

... then ... the original cabs, were all identical? Mmmmhhh I've some doubts  roll eyes



Now I can start to plan ...  Roll Eyes Cool

if anyone can do it, it's you max! good luck with the built and if you need anything else, just let me know! once again, confirmation of the measures i took would probably help ...

i'm always impressed how you manage to find stuff there. arcadeboneyard has the crappiest website E-V-E-R, i don't even bother looking there anymore because i haven't been able to find anything i want. am i missing something there?

p.s. hopefully i'll get you the missing measures today, i was out yesterday Wink

I don't check the site, I ask directly to Rob (arcadeboneyard owner and very kind guy) what I need. PS: check the kill list ....
